Smiler – Death Certificate 
Smiler - Death Certificate

Release Date: Out now

It can often frustrate when bands don’t have a thorough online presence but then there’s the other side of the coin where you just want bands to focus on making great music and not worry about raising their Twitter profile or getting more likes. Devon punks Smiler fall in to the latter category and new single ‘Death Certificate’ is a tight little number with punk at its core but Slash-esque guitars snarling throughout like a reluctantly caged beast. The drums are furious and relentless and there’s a real US Punk vibe flowing through this with the likes of the Ataris, the Wrens and early Offspring flowing through the choppy guitars and breathless vocals. Don’t worry about online lads, just keep rocking out but maybe add a couple of gigs, yeah?
